Saoirse Ronan

So remember way back when names like "Girls" star Allison Williams and "Fruitvale Station" lead Michael B. Jordan were being tossed around as possible contenders for "Fantastic Four"? Well, that list just got a helluva lot longer.

Kit Harrington, Saoirse Ronan, Jack O’Connell, Miles Teller, Kate Mara and Margot Robbie are all testing for various roles, according to Variety. Ronan, Mara and Robbie (she'll be making a big splash opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in "The Wolf Of Wall Street") are up to play Sue Storm, while Harrington, O'Connell and Teller are in the mix for Reed Richards (and it should be noted Teller was already mentioned a couple months ago). And apparently, Jordan is still the lone contender for Johnny Storm.

So what can we make of all this? Fox wants a young cast, with this casting kinda feeling like "Fantastic Four: First Class." That said, it's a pretty solid crop of young thesps, so we can't really complain about it either, but we're sure you have thoughts on this, so sound off below.

"Fanastic Four" is currently getting a new script via Simon Kinberg and will arrive with Josh Trank directing on March 6, 2015.

    I want Miles Teller to play Richard Reeds, that would be really awesome.

    Quite a big age disparity for the women from 19 year old Ronan to 30 year old Mara.

    Saoirse Ronan must seriously want a franchise. She's read for The Hunger Games, The Host, The Avengers, Star Wars and now Fantastic Four. And didn't she allegedly turn down the role of the Scarlet Witch in The Avengers which was hers for the taking and now she is only testing for Sue Storm in the Fantastic Four reboot alongside Kate Mara and Margot Robbie so she isn't even guaranteed this part? Who the hell is advising her?

    Can we have Saoirse Ronan for Star Wars instead please?

    I don't give a fück about superheroes anymore. Nolan's era of adult Batman films is finished. Now we'll just see endless rehashes of the same characters, a la The Amazing Spider-Man (=mediocre, forgettable, generic rubbish)

    I don't want Margot Robbie in this. She NEEDS to be cast as Mary Jane in TASM 3, she'll be just perfect in the role.
